The validate function does not exist in the form window, so it fails.

Are you sure creator is an undocumented property?  I wonder if you just
haven't added the property to the object.  Usually you can enumerate all the
supported properties of an object with a for...in loop.  When I tried this,
creator didn't show up.  Of course, it did when I first added the
newWindow.creator=window line.  It also works if I write
newWindow.ilovelucy=window.  I do agree that creator is better than
ilovelucy! <g>

Anyway, I'm curious as to where this creator property showed up.
